    Check out Santouka Ramen and Matcha Love while browsing the store's wide selection of Japanese goods. But beware of lines; this place gets crowded on weekends.

    great selection of sashimi and marinated meats but never go here on a Saturday or Sunday.

    Cheap eats are the best kind of eats. Make sure you get the katsu don set and cry years of ineffable joy with each and every bite,

    Thinly sliced meats for Japanese cooking like shabu shabu, sukiyaki, etc. veggies not as fresh. Ramen Santouka inside is great

    Try going on a weekend afternoon since there is an area where they sell snacks and give you samples.

    Buy sake. I recommend Kikusui, Shichida, and Walatake Onikoroshi. Do yourself a favor and buy them all.

    The ramen section in the food court is always packed, but worth the wait in line.
  • Saliem (Mei) C.
    Their deli nigiri, sushi rolls and bento boxes have too much sugar and high fructose corn syrup. Hence the awful aftertaste

    There's an awesome ramen shop inside - parking is hard to find all the time but not as bad on weekdays.

    Good for anything Japanese to fill your heart's content. Go for the food court too but expect a crowd usually.

    I thought it was funny that they sell the tiny egg salad sandwiches with no crust here, just like in Japan

    When beer is on sale, like Sapporo or Kirin Ichiban, stock up. $13.99 for a pack of 24 is one hell of a deal.

    Be careful at night. At around 7.45p on 11.24.09, several cars were broken into while everything was still open and busy. Muggings in the past too during the day. Nijiya > mitsuwa.

    日曜日のみつわは激混みで駐車場の空きがほとんどなかった。通路も広く、品数豊富だけど全体的に値段が高い。甘塩のがありNijiyaのより塩辛くないのがよかった。奥にある漬け物専門店は試食レベルではイマイチ。
